Board of Directors

PPMA BOARD OF DIRECTORS

The PPMA is a members' owned organisation. Each member owns the same amount of shares in the organisation irrespective of their size or annual expenditure with the association. Each member company can put forward an employee to be a director of the PPMA.

The Board of Directors meets approximately every quarter to work with the executive to develop products and services that benefit the members. Each PPMA director has a functional role for which they are responsible. PPMA directors are not paid and give their time voluntarily in the service of the association.
